Mount Markham appoints year-long interim superintendent
Dec. 29, 2014


The Mount Markham Board of Education on Monday, Dec. 29, appointed Robert Service as interim superintendent of the school district from Jan. 5, 2015, through Dec. 31, 2015.

Service, who has been superintendent and interim superintendent at various districts, also served as Mount Markham’s interim superintendent in 2013.

He will be replacing Superintendent Shawn Bissetta, whose resignation was accepted by the Mount Markham Board of Education on Dec. 16. Bissetta’s last day with Mount Markham will be Sunday, Jan. 4, because he starts as superintendent of the Oxford Academy and Central School District in Oxford, N.Y., on Monday, Jan. 5.

During Service’s year as interim superintendent, he will be excused from his duties from Feb. 9, 2015, to April 30, 2015, due to a previous commitment. The Board of Education appointed Dick Young, who was Mount Markham superintendent from 1991 to 2001, to serve as acting superintendent during the time when Service will be excused.

Additionally, for 20 days in January, Young will be working alongside Service through a BOCES contract to assist with the transition, budget season and curricular initiatives at the district.

Service and Young, who are both residents of Mount Markham Central School District, will earn $600 per day for their work.

The Board of Education received an analysis from Business Administrator Patricia Foss showing that the cost of using an interim superintendent, acting superintendent and some overlap in January will be within what was budgeted for a superintendent for the balance of the year.

Later in the school year, the Mount Markham Board of Education will begin discussions about the search for a permanent superintendent.

“The board is looking to direct a search that will serve and reflect the best qualities of the community,” board President Thomas Huxtable said. “Although the board will move expeditiously, we want only the qualities of the candidates – and not time – limiting our efforts. Therefore, we are enlisting the assistance of first-rate interim support for at least a year.”
